Who is this class for: This course should be helpful to anyone who wants to develop a deeper understanding of cancer metastasis. It should be useful to undergraduate students who are interested in exploring the science of cancer and to health care providers, data managers, and educators who need a more thorough understanding of metastatic cancer and how it affects individuals. The course is NOT designed for patients seeking treatment guidance.

As a biologist, it improves my understanding about cancer a lot. Glad to take this class. Thank you!

Excellent course. Gives you a well oriented description of the steps required for metastasis and doing so it opens our view of places were treatments can be implemented. Thanks for sharing your knowledge..

I really appreciated the scope and direction of this course. Cancer metastasis is very complex, and it's not possible to understand it entirely through one course, but this course does a great job at reviewing the large concepts in the study of cancer metastasis. For a non-scientific person, who has limited knowledge of the process of cancer metastasis, I felt the class has a good balance of scientific concepts matched with basic explanations. I learned a lot and hope to use my new knowledge going forward. Liked the reference to Steph Curry as well. :) Thanks.

Excellent Course ! (Y)
